Expectations During Recovery After Breast Augmentation


What to Expect During Recovery After Breast AugmentationFor most people, the decision to have elective surgery is based on considering the risks versus the benefits. If you want to make an informed decision about whether or not to have breast augmentation, you should consider whether the long recovery is worth the results.

How long is the recovery After Breast Augmentation?

The full recovery after breast augmentation procedures varies greatly from one person to the next, but the average recovery time is about six weeks. You’ll be able to return to activities slowly throughout the recovery period, but you won’t be fully recovered until about six weeks after your surgery.

How much help will I actually need during recovery after breast augmentation?

You’ll be able to reintroduce activities as your body heals. But you will need some help at first. How long you’ll need that assistance or what assistance you’ll need is based on each individual. Everyone should take the first few days to simply heal, getting help with household chores, food preparation, and other needs.

After the first week, your recovery will largely be specific to you. Your surgeon will give you specific recovery instructions that you should follow as closely as possible. Your doctor or someone from their office will check in with you on a regular basis throughout your recovery so that your treatment plan can be adjusted based on your progress.

I love Tampa Palms Plastic Surgery ~ Dr. Moseillo, Mary, Nancy & Paula. I had breast cancer and reconstruction with Dr. Moseillo several years ago and knew I would never let anyone perform surgery on me other than him. I decided I wanted to do an Upper Blepharoplasty (upper eyelid surgery). I had the surgery a few months ago, am now at my summer home in Maine and everyone is commenting on how great I look. They have no idea that I had anything done! I keep hearing, “you have amazing eyes”. I am so thrilled with the results, feel 10 years younger and if you’re thinking about this procedure, or any other for that matter, do not hesitate to go to Tampa Palms

Dr. Mosiello, plain and simply put , is the BEST ! I did a lot of research and he was the one I chose and am very thankful and grateful that I did, as I had consulted with other plastic surgeons from other cancer centers. Dr. Mosiello surpassed in every area. He and his staff truly care and are warm, friendly, compassionate and knowledgeable. Which takes the stress out of any pre surgery or procedure. Knowing you have the best surgeon in your corner is the most important part. Post surgical procedures look amazing and he has saved my life, and has made me whole again. Look no further, he IS the best.

I came to Dr. Mosiello’s practice as a reluctant patient who had just been given the diagnosis of breast cancer. I have been in several doctors’ office’s during my diagnosis and treatment and Dr. Mosiello’s office is my favorite. He is a very kind, competent surgeon who patiently answered questions and explained things fully. I was given clear post op directions and checked on by the nurse before my first post op visit and someone was always available if I had a question or concern. His staff is amazing! Melissa, Paula, Mary and Carol are all very personable and caring. This is also an office where I did not wait long periods of time to be seen. Things run smoothly and timely. I would highly recommend Dr. Mosiello to anyone in need of a plastic surgeon.
